What is the purpose of this free template in a business plan for a Landscape Contractor?
This template has been put together to assist the business plan writer to put together a quick synopsis of the ownership structure of a Landscape Contractor business. The template gives the business plan writer the ability to put together a quick graphic showing the total ownership structure. When lenders look to make small business loans, one of the items that they consider is who they are lending to. Thus if there are three owners and two of the three owners have excellent credit but one of the three has bad credit then it may affect the ability of the small business to successfully obtain an approval on the business loan. On the other hand if the third owner has a minority stake in the business, usually less than 20%, then the lenders may not require the credit scores of the third person for approval but may instead rely on the creditworthiness of the other two owners who together own most of the company. The third owner can then provide support to the business loan application with his or her balance sheet. This graphic and chart gives the lender a very quick view over who controls how much of the Landscape Contractor.
Thus one of the business owners of the Landscape Contractor can be a silent partner in the small business and still be able to lend a hand in the overall financial strength of the business loan package. This can also be particularly helpful if the silent partner is not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States and / or does not have a valid social security number or tax identification number (TIN).
